WPL 2024: Alyssa Healy fiercely tackles a pitch-invader

UP Warriorz registered their first win of the Women’s Premier League 2024 as they beat the defending champions Mumbai Indians by seven wickets in Match 06 on Wednesday, February 28 at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. Kiran Navgire was the star with the bat for UP who scored a blistering half-century off 25 balls. She was eventually dismissed after scoring 57 (31) clobbering six fours and four sixes in her innings and took home the Player of the Match award.

While several stars from both teams shone during the game, a pitch invader also made his appearance during the first innings of the match. The incident took place before the last of Mumbai Indians’ innings bowled by Anjali Sarvani. After Sarvani shattered S Sajana’s (4 off 2) stumps and sent her back into the pavilion, a fan managed to breach the security and run onto the pitch.

However, his heroic moment was turned into a nightmare in no time as he was fiercely tackled by UP Captain Alyssa Healy. The wicketkeeper batter managed to stop the fan from running further before the security personnel took him away.
